My mum was a lone parent at 17; I never knew my real dad. We never owned a home. Twice in my teens I had to live away from home; the second time because of my mum’s alcoholism – an illness that would kill her. Going to university was not my destiny, it was an escape. By my mid-20s I was a single mum with two children under two and on benefits. I know what it’s like to need a Labour government.

My mum inspired me to join the Labour party. I wanted to do something to help women like her and others who, for whatever reason, are made to feel they aren’t good enough. Or for children whose hopes and dreams are limited by who their parents are or their postcode.

In the early hours of May 8, Caroline Flint was at Doncaster Racecourse watching the bizarre spectacle of her son's Norwegian girlfriend giving an interview to Danish television about what it was like to see the British Labour Party lose a general election up close.

"I spent the rest of Friday basically having a duvet day on the sofa and every now and again watching a bit more of what happened the previous night - and feeling pretty depressed by the whole thing," she recalls.

In the wake of Labour's defeat, the shadow energy and climate change secretary decided it was time to "step up" and run for deputy leader. She has a straightforward response to what the party needs to do between now and 2020. "We definitely have to attract more people who vote Conservative back to Labour," she says. "Our party is not a pressure group, we exist to win elections."
